The PORTIO 1 DAP is a dual-lane, fixed-weight portion cutter that uses a top camera on each lane to scan the volume of the chicken fillet, tender fillets, or deboned leg meat. It is typically used for portioning poultry cubes, poultry slices, karagee, kakugiri or BLK. The DAP Intelligent Portion cutter is a superior machine, when considering the width of the belt, for instance.

Optimized yield

The PORTIO software for the Portion Cutter always calculates the cuts so as to leave zero waste, and maximize the yields. Conditional programs are possible for increased yields. Combinations of fixed thickness and various fixed weights allow portioning for maximum yield for all poultry applications.

Unparalleled accuracy

1 laser camera on the top perfectly scans flat products such as chicken fillets or deboned leg meat. This transforms the shape of the poultry product into a 3D model. As it knows the density of the product, the intelligent software of the portioning machine instantly calculates where to cut the product to obtain the target weights.

Modular belt

The portion cutter has automatic stretch compensation which guarantees optimum accuracy over the years, using the same belt. The unique belt surface, is specially designed for poultry products and will keep the products in place and prevents them from moving during portioning.

Automatic adjustment

The cutting angle can be adjusted without the need for tools to 5 different positions: 0°, 15°, 30°, 45° or 50°. A patented system automatically adjusts the gap between the infeed- and outfeed belt for the optimum spacing

Adding options

Specially designed options can be bolted on to the portioner at any later stage for specific applications. A laser line can be projected on the infeed belt to indicate to the operator the correct placement of the chicken fillets or tenders. The density scale compensates for variation in injected poultry products. The Automatic Product Holder prevents chicken fillets from moving during portioning. The retractable outfeed belt allows the head to be separated or the tail to be trimmed and can be combined with a blow-off system.

User-friendly software interface

Intuitive programming of cutting patterns and fast and easy fine-tuning of the programs to get the maximum yields. The cutting pattern is shown on the screen along with the details of the thickness and the weight of each poultry portion.

Touch screen

Both lanes are controlled by a single touch screen interface which can be rotated towards the operators for the most ergonomic position. The touch screen can be easily accessed from both sides of the machine.


The MATRIX P software collects all production data from the PORTIO and allows production reports to be generated. MATRIX P enables users to remotely take programs offline and monitor the status of the poultry slicing machine using an event log.             

Extremely hygienic, easy to clean

The portion cutter complies with the most stringent hygiene standards. The open structure of the portioner allows it to be cleaned using a pressure washer and disinfected on the inside and outside. A CIP (Cleaning In Place) system rinses the belts. All cabinets with electrics and electronics have a unique air-drying system to prevent the build-up of condensation. Belts can be removed with a quick release, without the need for tools. Hygienic motors are used in addition to a dual-seal concept on the electrical cabinets.


The portion cutter can be connected to the internet, allowing the status of the portioner to be diagnosed from a remote service point. 

Low noise

Operators appreciate the good working environment around the PORTIO, thanks to its low noise levels.

Individual control

Both lanes can run individual cutting programs and can cut at different angle settings.
